Re: learning the ropes... picture size

Because for one thing engraving with a bit or a laser diode at 300 DPI (0.003333333" - 1"/300) is not feasible or physically possible. So I set 0.01" as the default. And I think you will also run across other images at 96 DPI and 72 DPI, depending on source. For engraving, images have...
